My mother apparently took the "buy handmade" pledge, or at least for me. Here are some lovely gifts I received from her, all from Etsy. I wish I knew who the sellers were, but hopefully she'll tell me. Right?
The Welcome, Christmas book is actually a repurposed book made into a journal, with really cool vintage sheet music, color images, & high-quality writing paper. Then, there are vintage hankies, trims, buttons, & thread, as well as a "silk hosiery repair kit." Pretty groovy! Oh, and the icicle hanging from the book is handmade from vintage buttons.
Thanks, mom. ;)
